COCC Members

To transform Colorado into a national leader in organic waste recovery and market development.

To increase composting infrastructure, create and drive end markets requiring standards for use, and drive state and local policies advancing organic material recovery and compost use. 

The Colorado Composting Council works to grow market-driven compost infrastructure and or capacity, create and drive end markets requiring standards for use and drive local and state policies requiring the use of organic recovery and compost. The compost council has developed a strategic plan and is working diligently on multiple projects. 

As the state chapter of USCC, we are working on several fronts to increase the diversion of organic waste materials for composting and to make finished compost more accessible to potential end markets, particularly in agriculture.
